Leadership in Veterinary Medicine provides both theoretical and practical information for veterinary professionals who are contemplating leadership or currently facing day-to-day leadership challenges.

  • Explores the principal areas of leadership for both veterinary professionals and for those leading veterinary professionals
  • Discusses various leadership styles, competencies, behaviours and perspectives
  • Addresses topics such as leadership assessment, organisational dynamics, interpersonal communication, remote and virtual leadership, and collaboration skills
  • Assists readers in developing strategy, leading change, creating effective teams and improving staff engagement
